Hi!  This website sort of has my planning-in-progress information.  I just love all this wedding planning stuff, looking at pretty pictures of dresses, flowers, cakes, reception decor, etc.  Some of my pictures are from the knot, so if you have looked at that site extensively, you may recognize some of the images.  I hope some of the information is helpful to you.  Always feel free to contact me at
